Look for Langermann’s, Baltimore’s newest restaurant, to open this weekend (Dec. 12, or sooner) in the old Kiss Cafe space in the Can Company, says chef/owner Neal Langermann. While the cuisine is mostly Southern inspired, diners can also expect to find American regional offerings, too, he says.
The chef, who formerly worked at Georgia Brown’s in DC, says the restaurant’s philosophy is to focus on hospitality and the care of the guests as well as the food. The restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily.
Most entrees are priced under $21 and feature dishes such as a pork chop with candied yams, spinach, and Calvados apple jus ($18.95), and shrimp and grits with shallots, tomatoes, and andouille sausage in a buttery clam broth ($17.95). The chef recommends appetizers like the fried green tomatoes with chow-chow ($6.95) and the seared diver scallops with creamed corn and tomato chutney ($8.95). There’s lighter fare, too.
Langermann and managing partner David McGill had been looking for a restaurant spot in Columbia before stumbling on the Canton location. "It was the right place and the right time for us to land," the chef said. "We want it to be a neighborhood restaurant, where people come time and time again."
